Scenes of the fair primarily include shots of the midway which appears to have been a James H. Drew exposition. Footage from an indoor camera set up as a fundraiser for Mountain Community Television (MCTV #9170) is edited into the video. This program was videotaped for broadcast on cable television Channel 12 as part of the Broadside/Mountain Community Television initiative to provide locally produced public access television to southwestern Virginia.

Subject: Classic Example of late 1970s Home Video
Just based on the clothing and hair styles, I was going to guess this takes place in 1977 or 1978 and received confirmation from a sign in one of the fair booths that this video was shot in 1978.
